Women of Castle

This online exhibition explores the Women of Castle project, carried out by artist Bex Harvey. Bex chronicled the history of women within Durham Castle and gathered photographs, media and never-before-heard stories on the Women of Castle. Bex profiled ten Women of Castle, took around 5000 photographs, created the first ladies’ flag, and more. The women profiled include staff, alumni and names from both the present and past communities.
